Farm Credit Canada's AgriSpirit Fund is about making life better for people in rural communities.
The AgriSpirit Fund has a budget of $1,000,000 to fund capital projects (e.g. equipment, construction, rennovations, etc.) in Canadian communities with less than 100,000 residents. Funding awards are between $5,000 and $25,000 per project.
To be eligible applicants must be a registered charity, agricultural society, a municipality or partnered with a municipal government. Supported projects are expected to enhance the quality of life for people living in a rural community. Additionally, projects must be completed by December 2013 and display acknowledgment of AgriSpirit’s contribution. The deadline for applications is June 20, 2011.
